Focused Responsibility

“Life happens!” How many times have we heard THAT line? And, it’s true!! What it misses is the most important part: our response to life “happening” is more important than the actual things that ARE happening! A popular song in Unity is entitled “Our Thoughts Are Prayers.” Our negative reactions to those things in life that go against our wishes become the prayers that attract more of the same! WE, and WE ALONE are responsible for our reactions to daily events!! Our reactions are prayers! WE CHOOSE those reactions, though we may not wish to admit it!! Our choices are prayers! This week we are invited to be conscious of that space between stimulus and response, wherein we MAKE those choices and consider the outcome!! We can choose anger, or we can choose faith! We can choose forgiveness! We can choose peace and harmony! However we choose, God ALWAYS says, “Yes!”
